Scavenged Books

This blog is dedicated to sustainability, recycling, and most of all scavenged or pre loved books that found its way to me! I pledge to read the written word. And I pledge to love books no matter how dog eared they may be!

Chapter 1 / How nice it is to gab with co-workers about books!

The start of a new chapter (new blog)!


Objective: To post everyday about my reads; or really random strings of text that I'm sure will always center on books and reading.


I will try my best!




I've only started working for about a week, but I feel like I've found a few kindred souls in our editorial team. It shouldn't be a suprise for me to find a voracious reading appetite side to my co-workers, because after all, reading and writing are so closely interlinked! Here are some things I heared that made me happy to work with the people in my team


Carlos: "I had friends, but most of the time it was just me and my books."


Carlos is the news editor. He's a real cool guy and he's a bit more famous in the media industry than all of us combined. I would like to know what are the kinds of books that interest him, so I could look up on it. Alas, my rare moments of shyness reared its head!


Yula: "I'm reading Anansi Boys."


Neil Gaiman! Awesome! I loved his American Gods. Yula is the ever-wise team coordinator;  Yula said AG confused her because of the intergration of mythology. It's funny, that was the part I love reading the most. She told me she's juggling three books.


Jenny: "I like Asian literature!"


Jenny is as smart as a whip and has a penchant for Asian anything. Like me. I wish I could show her some of my Asian authors and other Asian literature books. She loves Japanese manga!


I love my workplace! The people seem so swell~
